Putting it out there.
So for the last 3 years or so, there's a debate that's been raging in the dubstep community about the legitimacy of "Brostep," which first started off as a mutant, aggressive version of dubstep with more emphasis placed on ravey, hi- and mid-range sounds, rather than focusing on sub-bass and the traditional low end of the frequency spectrum.
What's happened now is brostep has replaced dubstep in terms of worldwide popularity, thanks to rave DJs (first Rusko, then Excision and now Skrillex) emphasizing this souped-up, steroidal version of dubstep. The dubstepforum is pissed to see their original beloved bass beats transformed into basically a slower version of happy hardcore.
This mix is comprised of other current happenings in the dubstep scene, tracks that tend to avoid the screechy, mid-range stuff and concentrate on depth & roots. It starts out kinda grimey and ends up in deep space.
